Absolutely amazing! Lived up to the hype! I was in tears I busted a gut laughing. Can’t believe it’s actually closing!
Ben Stiller seeing the show and of course sitting onstage.
During “Letters”, Someone in the orchestra seating refused to give Shoba (Natasha) the letter from Anatole and just threw it on stage.
During “The Abduction”, Lucas Steele was sitting next to a girl on stage. She offered his water and you can see him fighting to break character. But he said “what the hell” and drank from her water bottle. The whole theatre started screaming and laughing.
During “In My House”, the sound system and mics went kaput and they had to STOP the show. They made the actors leave the stage (all of them left except Scott [who was Pierre]). And that’s when the shenanigans started. So, everyone starts taking out their phone and then the ushers are calling people out to put them away. Someone started the “Ohh ohhh yeahs” and so the whole theatre was singing. Then we got tired of that so the musicians all stage started the wave, so we started doing that. Someone missed the memo about the phones so they almost kicked a couple out but we all rioted to let them stay. Once, the sound system was back. They start from the beginning of the number and Lucas screams back at us “DO YOU GUYS REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED?” Everyone fell out laughing.
since it’s fanfiction writer’s appreciation day what better time than to recommend some stuff for one of the more niche genres that also happens to be one of my favourites. so if you’ve ever been interested in giving alpha louis/omega harry a shot, this is a good place to start!
and the truth shall set you free (…maybe) by jaerie // Betism: A religion based on the belief that the beta gender has been chosen by God to protect and defend the purity and dignity of the human race by resisting and condemning the lustful ways and flawed biology of the alpha and omegaHarry is a Betist and Louis is an alpha who runs with a bad crowd. This is what happens when two worlds collide.
all these lights by mediawhore // “People vote for alphas because they’re strong and they’re not only beautiful but also mesmerizing. They make you want to give them all of your attention, make you want to beg for some of theirs back. They’re shiny, oozing sex appeal and a commanding presence, and people always want more and more. Omegas are enticing too for sure, but it’s not the same. It makes people uncomfortable. It doesn’t make them want to root for you.” the canon fic where Harry is an omega and dreams come with a price.
to wrap me in paper by juliusschmidt // Louis hasn’t been keeping track of his ruts, but, it turns out, Harry has.

I’m having a great time watching the people who watch Shadowhunters but have never read the books and they’re all just freaking out over malec and I’m just sitting here laughing my pretty little ass off like hon you have no idea what’s in store just you fucking wait.
In terms of the whole eclipse happening over where I live, I’ve been imagining the Pillar Men during some of the ye olden times solar eclipses? Like, the sun being blocked out? The fearsome enemy of the most powerful race suddenly not there at the supposed time?? I’m torn between the Pillar Men being all ‘wtf is even happening how is THE SUN JUsT GONE??? aaaaa’, and Kars is totally trying to use it to his advantage by studying the movement of the moon and going into some crazy shenanigans.
There’s a bit in Wonder Woman that I can’t stop thinking about. It’s the part where she walks towards General Ludendorff at the gala. He see her and starts walking in her direction as if to attack, then surges towards her and grabs her in a kind of dance hold. She’s stunned, frozen. It’s probably the only time in the film where Diana looks afraid.
Because she was attacked, but in a way she’s never encountered before. She’s been trained to handle “honest” attacks, where the attacker makes their intentions clear. But here she is attacked in the way women in this world are so often attacked. It’s an unwanted, unwelcome intrusion, a man putting his hands on her without her consent, intruding into her personal space in an aggressive, obtrusive, threatening manner. But to bystanders, they are simply dancing. She doesn’t know what to do. She’s trained her whole life to deal with honest, open attacks, but faced with the sneaky, faux-polite attack of this kind of man, she’s completely lost.
I thought this was a great moment. It reflects the experiences of so many women so well.
On a side note, I mentioned it to my (male) partner afterward, and he hadn’t even noticed Diana’s reaction in that moment. He’s a great guy and a good, kind person, but his obliviousness to her confusion and fear speaks volumes about the different experiences of men and women in our society.
